success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov

national correspondent john king is traveling with the president in amman right now and is joining us now with the latest. it sounds like the president is still a little bit hopeful at least that this can be resolved, iran's nuclear ambitions, peacefully through diplomacy and negotiation. that is the impression i'm getting though he is obviously not ruling out the military option either. >> reporter: that's the delicate challenge for the president. if you just listen to one event like that one today you might think oh, he's playing good cop. then you listen to some of his statements during the trip in israel where he promised the israeli government if necessary if diplomacy fails look me in the eye. i mean it. i will use military force to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. he also said he wouldn't stand in the way if israel wanted to defend itself. so at some points he is muscular at other points more gentle and reaching out. it is the big national holiday, the biggest holiday of the year in iran right now. when he talks about the great civilization he is trying to reach out to t
